Vestibular Assessment

Understanding the Vestibular System:

The vestibular system is a crucial component of our inner ear responsible for maintaining balance and spatial orientation. When this system is compromised, individuals may experience dizziness, vertigo, and difficulties with coordination, impacting their daily activities and overall well-being.

Common Vestibular Conditions:

Our dedicated team specializes in assessing and treating various vestibular conditions, including:

  1. Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV): Characterized by brief episodes of intense vertigo triggered by specific head movements.
  2. Labyrinthitis and Vestibular Neuritis: Inflammation of the inner ear or vestibular nerve, leading to vertigo, imbalance, and nausea.
  3. Meniere’s Disease: A chronic condition marked by episodes of vertigo, tinnitus, and hearing loss.
  4. Concussion-Related Vestibular Dysfunction: Impaired vestibular function following a head injury, affecting balance and spatial awareness.

Our Vestibular Assessment:

Our expert physiotherapists employ comprehensive assessments to identify the root cause of your vestibular symptoms. Through a combination of clinical tests and cutting-edge diagnostic tools, we tailor our approach to your unique needs.

Physiotherapy Vestibular Treatments:

  1. Canalith Repositioning Procedures (CRP): For BPPV, our therapists use specific head and body movements to guide displaced crystals in the inner ear back to their proper position.
  2. Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy (VRT): A personalized exercise program designed to improve gaze stability, balance, and overall function by promoting adaptation and compensation within the vestibular system.
  3. Gaze Stabilization Exercises: Targeting eye movements to enhance visual focus during head movements, reducing dizziness and improving stability.
  4. Balance Training: Tailored exercises to improve overall balance and coordination, aiding in the management of various vestibular disorders.
